This website is a free-to-air resource for all post-primary students of history in the Republic of Ireland & elsewhere.

All the material on this website is free to use as long as it is not-for-profit, educational and general interest.
If you have any queries about any article or page on this site, please feel free to contact me through the contact form provided below. In the meantime, please bear with me as I aim to provide a fully comprehensive study aid to the entire Junior Certificate & Leaving Certificate syllabi.
